7:03 pm
>> heading towards interstate '95, they realize they need gas. they pull up to a gas station. the younger brother gets out with danny's credit card to get gas. moments later, he knocked on the window and says cash only. he has to go into the food mart. tamerlan has, for some reason, the gun down in the pocket and is fiddling with the gps. and danny realizes, that's his time. >> while one brother is inside paying for the gas, the carjacking victim bolts from the suv, sprinting to the gas station across the street. >> translator: he fell. he clapszed here. he fell right here and he appealed to me. please, please call the police. there are people out there who want to kill me. people want to make sure i die. they have guns with them and they have a bomb with them. >> in his rush to escape, the carjacking victim leaves his cell phone in the stolen suv. police trace its signal to

7:05 pm
trunk of one of their vehicles and hurls something at our officers. >> did you see the bombs being thrown? >> i did. i saw the explosives being thrown. and then i can see them reaching down into backpacks: i actually saw them take out the pressure cooker bomb and put it right at their feet! the brothers had another bomb just like the ones they're suspected of using at the marathon. >> i actually saw a spark from the bomb and that's when i immediately hit the ground. i could feel it. i could feel it shake the house. >> at that point, one of the shooters actually started charging the officers, running down the streets, still firing his weapon. >> and they are, literally, about 10 feet away from each other exchanging gunfire. and then he runs out of ammunition. the bad guy. and one of my officers is able to tackle him and put him to the ground. >> i looked back up and the other brother got back into the car and he had turned it around in the street and started
7:06 pm
accelerating up laurel street towards the police, towards the vehicles, basically flooring it. >> somebody, at the last minute, yelling get out of the way. and they dove out of the way as he came roaring through and ran over his brother. >> as tamerlan lies dying in the street, 19-year-old dzhokhar tsarnaev drives straight through a police barricade and escapes. >> the car that he abandoned, a little further down the street, there was blood in that vehicle. so we knew he was wounded, we just didn't know how bad. >> wounded and on the loose. at dawn on friday, an entire region is put on lockdown, as a convoy of law enforcement personnel and equipment rolls into water town. >> we're asking people to shelter in place. in other words, to stay in doors with their doors locked. during the day, friday,

7:09 pm
out in a suicide-type manner. we got close enough that at one point, where both of his hands were up, we could see that there were no weapons in them, no ignition devices. we broke away from the shield protective cover and we just rushed him. we put hands on him, grabbed him and pulled him off the boat down on to the ground and got him over to where the medics are and the federal agents who had taken him into custody. >> just before 9:00 p.m., it's observe. a bloody, seriously-wounded and unarmed dzhokhar tsarnaev is taken alive. coming up, chris lawrence on the trail of terror and what could have triggered the deadly bombings. welcome to the new new york state, where cutting taxes for families and businesses is our business. we've reduced taxes and lowered costs to save businesses more than two billion dollars to grow jobs, cut middle class income taxes to the lowest rate in sixty years,

one brother, 19-year-old dzhokhar tsarnaev was out going, friendly and earned a scholarship. the other, tamerlan tsarnaev was 26, married with a young daughter, an aspiring amateur boxer who had a dream. >> his goals in boxing, clearly, he wanted to be a world champ one day. and i think he could have achieved that. >> luis vasquez met tamerlan as a sophomore in 2004. >> he koumd be intimidating because people knew he was a boxer and he had more of a reserved personality to him. but if you went up to him, he would talk to you right back and he was very friendly. >> but were there any clues of
7:14 pm
the violence to come? >> they never expressed any desires to harm people. they didn't expect life at one point. they were friendly. >> after high school, tamerlan attended bunker hill community college studying accounting until 2008 when he left college, but he continued to pursue his dream. >> good? >> boxing trainer eddie bishop met tamerlan at a tournament. >> he was a fighter that had a lot of skill and a lot of ability. >> but bishop questioned whether tamerlan could ever become a boxing champ. >> he had all the skill, but he lacked the hot to make you a champion. >> the tsarnaev family is from chechnya and came here to the u.s. more than 10 years ago. dzhokhar came first and then later, his brother and two sisters joined the family. >> before coming to the united states, tamerlan's father coached him in boxing. so he was already on his way to becoming an experienced fighter.
7:15 pm
by 2009, tamerlan was boxing in the golden gloves tournament in salt lake city, utah. fellow boxer julian poller roomed with tamerlan during the tournament. he remembers his swagger and sense of style. >> he stood out and that was kand of, like, the perception that i got. flashy, confident, maybe cocky. i guess he backed it up in the ring. he could fight. he could punch. he koumd put a guy out. if the time was right, he had a big punch and the opening was there, he could finish a guy. >> he was arrested that same year for slap his girlfriend in the face during a fight over another woman. the following year, 2010, he married catherine russel, a sul folk university student he met in a nightclub and had dated on and off for seven years.

she converted to islam. >> in 2009, carried himself with a lot of confidence. and then the next year, seemed like a humbler guy. dressed a lot more conservative. kind of, like, came to the fight as we all did, hoody, jeans. >> he also seemed more devoted to his muslim faith. >> he didn't talk that much about his faith to me until, like, the next year i saw him at the tournament. it was obviously that was a bigger part of his life. he felt he needed to share it with me. he seemed happy about where he was with his faith.
7:17 pm
>> tamerlan's mother witnessed her son's transformation. >> islam is required for a woman to be covered. so i said it was really not expect expected so i said give me some time, you know, tamerlan. >> last year, tamerlan traveled back to his homeland, a region of russia with ethnic violence and extremism. when he returned six months later, he became more out spoken about his faith. tamerlan stood up during a sermon and challenged the preacher in two separate public out bursts. one last november, another in january of this year. >> so when the person who was giving the sermon began to talk about dr. martin luther king, this man got up and objected.
7:18 pm
you know, he raised his voice, which is against the etiquette of the sermon. and people objected to it. and some people might have even asked him to leave the mosque if he didn't, you know, like what he was hearing. >> but there were no indications that tamerlan or younger brother dzhokhar could be dangerous. >> he cared about you. they cared about people around them. they cared for other people making great choices and creating opportunities for themselves like they were trying to do for each other and themselves, also. it just doesn't make sense. >> tamerlan's high school friend, luis vasquez later coached dzhokhar in soccer at the cambridge ridge and latin school. >> these guys had two traits. one was a family who he cared for and the other was a social leader. he was co-captain of the wrestling team. >> dzhokhar got a $2500 academic
7:19 pm
scholarship and enrolled at the university of massachusetts dartmouth. on september 11th, 2012, an ironic date, in retrospect, he took the oath to become a u.s. citizen. zek bettencourt interacted with dzhokhar. >> he was a cool kid. very smart. very smart. >> i thought he was, like, really a good kid. he seemed like a good kid. every time i saw him, i thought he was a nice person. >> those who thought they knew the brothers from high school, college, through boxing, now realize they never really knew them at all. >> the two brothers outwardly so different, on april 15th, accused of acting together to
7:20 pm
bomb the boston marathon. incredibly, just days after the bombings, dzhokhar was spotted back on campus. bettencourt saw him at the gym. >> we talked about the bombing for, like, five minutes. he seemed very nonchalant. he seemed very tire and off. he said i haven't been doing much lately, so i decided to come to the gym. i'm just like whoa, whatever. >> he says his reaction wasn't surprising at the time. >> he was like, yeah, tragedies happen. these things happen around the world. it's crazy. >> for julian, he hadn't thought much of his former boxing buddy until last week. that's when he remembered that he mad kept tamerlan's number. i forgot it was in the phone. so i hit the t and sure enough, his name was right there. and i was like, wow, it's definitely this dude.

7:25 pm
originally from here, but they left for a better life in the yielts. tamerlan taesz retusarnaev retu this part of the world last year for six months is raising a lot of questions! who did he meet with over there? what did he learn? what did he do? did he get money? did he receive encouragement? funding? direct support? come back to the u.s. and attack. and those are things that i don't think we'll ever know. >> what we do know is that in january, 2012, tamerlan left the united states on a flight bound for moscow. he made his way to dagestan, next to his family's ancestral homeland, chechnya, today, also a part of russia. >> translator: he could radiate light and warmth. >> his extended family in
7:26 pm
dagestan welcomed him warmly. >> he smiled a lot. and i asked him, is this your customary american smile? he was morbid american. >> much of what tamerlan tsarnaev did here remains a mystery. we know that he stayed for some weeks here at his parents home keeping mostly to family and friends, helping his father out in his businesses around town and often sleeping in. >> the tsarnaev family is part of the chechen community here, like many other chechens, displaced from their homeland. after the second world war, tens of thousands of chechens perished. in the 1990s, chechens fought and won a bloody war for independence from russia. it was during this violence that the younger tsarnaev brother, dzhokhar, was born and given the name of a chechen leader. >> it's a sure sign of chechen patriotism in the family that in
7:27 pm
1993, they called that little son, dzhokhar, after the pro-independence president. chechen extremists would kill 186 children and more than a hundred in moscow. luis vasqued was friends with tamerlan in high school. >> that's where he's from. he didn't really elaborate. >> there's a whole family of chechens you grew up with with families being displaced and killed and so on. >> thomas has studied and
7:28 pm
written about the region. >> for 340es people, that's a tragedy. but for a small minority, it's something in their dna that drives them. >> and like many displaced chechens, tamerlan may have struggled to fit in. the relatives still live hire. tamerlan traveled here to his trip last year. >> translator: he came to see me. we talked. i said come here, guy. are you studying, i asked? i'm studying, he said. there was nothing criminal about him. >> he says this region has seen a growth in extremism. >> if you're a young jihadist from this region, you certainly blame russia as the evil empire that attacked and oppressed you. and, also, the west.
7:29 pm
basically, did nothing to intervene when russia was bombing chechnya. it's not known if tamerlan met with any extremists during his visit to chechnya. on his youtube page, there was a link to this video of a small-time mill tant. they were both in dagestan last year. according to police, he ran a training camp in the woods and made these videos demonstrating how to make and prepare homemade explosives or use a cell phone as a detonator. and, says the local police chief, the militants trained foreigners. >> what did the foreigners learn? >> i can't talk about the number of foreigners, but they met to exchange their banded experience. >> he says the mill tants trained men who live in other countries. >> there are reports that dujan
7:30 pm
was observed at the mosque and he was observed meeting tsarnaev. do you know this? >> translator: i really can't answer this. for different reasons, i can't answer. you understand me? >> did abudujan and tamerlan meet? we don't know. this past december, they were killed when russian special forces hit their hideout. >> maybe he's a hero, the brother, maybe he isn't. but tamerlan watches these videos and then this individual gets killed. now, logic would tell you, who would you be mad at? runners in the boston marathon? what did they have to do with it? would you be mad at the united states? what did the u.s. have to do with it? >> no one will ever know. but we do know that in his last visit to dagestan, his family noticed a change in him. >> we were happy that he didn't become a drug addict. he didn't become a alcoholic.
7:31 pm
he was on the path of islam. >> his family says that during his time here, tamerlan would often visit the central mosque behind me for friday prayers as well as other mosques across this town. telling his family how central islam was to his life and that it was a religion of peace. >> that's why he doesn't believe that tamerlan and dzhokhar could have bombed the boston marathon. >> translator: in islam, killing a non-muslim is like killing all of humanity. and killing a muslim is like killing the whole world. >> last year, tsarnaev's parents moved back to dagestan from the u.s. the aunt says the mother wuz in shock when she saw her son's faces splashed across television screens here. >> translator: she grabbed the television screen screaming, shouting, saying it can't be. >> their mother still cannot believe her sons may be responsible. >> i really feel sorry for all
7:32 pm
of them. really feel sorry for all of them. but i do not want to believe that these were my sons, okay. and i don't believe. >> the people investigating boston, they say that tamerlan's faith drove him, what they say he did, in boston. >> i don't think so. i don't think so. i don't think that tamerlan did this. i don't think that faith would bring him into it. >> on thursday, the parents held a press conference. they are helping with the investigation, both were interviewed earlier by u.s. authorities. >> translator: they asked about our children. how did they live? what did they do? what were their interests? >> coming up, the investigation,

7:37 pm
>> why would the tsarnaev brothers do it? how did they do? and, most importantly, who would have helped them? >> what they want to do is ensure there are no other ties to any other groups that might try to follow up with this or plan something. >> juliette is a former assistant secretary of homeland security. >> the other piece is building a strong case and making sure that case doesn't fall apart. that's why the indictment released this week was very, very careful to say, look, we know he used weapons of mass destruction. we know he killed people. and that's enough to give him the death penalty. >> to build the case, and find the answers, hundreds of federal investigators are now working around the clock digging through debris, analyzing bits of bombs in one of the nation's largest terrorist investigations since 9/11. neighborhoods like this one

across boston are being visited by the f.b.i. >> we'll hear about the terrifying line through boston. >> new details are emerging daily. >> breaking news on the boston bombing. >> her attorney said she knew nothing about what her husband was allegedly planning. >> among the leads, details on the 3w07 the bombs used by the tsarnaev brothers. ordinary pressure cookers bought at a department store. packed with nails and ball bearings to cause maximum carnage.
7:39 pm
>> all of the equipment used was probably under a hundred dollars. >> where would two brothers in boston learn how to take a pressure cooker like this and make it into a bomb like that. right here, of course. it's on the internet. >> the striking similarity between the boston devices and the recipe in the summer of 2010. how to build a bomb in your mom's kitchen. >> >> now, these similarities are low grade explosive powder. but, also, very specific stuff like the fact that in spy magazine told followers that they should glue shrapnel inside the pressure cookers. now, that's what was done in boston.
7:40 pm
published in english. cro cro crookshank has been tracking al-qaida and this magazine for years. he says investigators are looking closely at whether the brothers got their bomb recipe here, that could have larger implications. >> one of the larger concerns is that in spy magazine, it's still publishing new issues. in an issue that was put out recently, the magazine stated we are publishing america's worst nightmare. as investigators sift through evidence, the bits of bomb blown across the crime scene should yield other clues, too. >> what were the components used in creating these devices? coupled with that, you're going to have an investigation or laboratory sciences working on
7:41 pm
things like fingerprints, hair and fibers that may be included in there. and also tool markings. >> ray low pez is a former fbi explosives expert. they're going to look for tool marks that were left after these things were done. and that's going to be matched to any tools that they could find at any of the search sites that investigators are working at. >> officials now say at least one of the bombs was detonated with a remote control device similar to those used to control toy cars. federal investigators must also now ask themselves hard questions like did they drop the ball with tamerlan tsarnaev? two times, the russian government approached the u.s. with concerns.
7:42 pm
>> what did he do when he went back for six months? did he sit in his aunt and uncle's home for six months? or was he doing something else. and when he came back to this country, why didn't it ring a bell with the fbi intelligence unit that he should be checked out and vetted again. >> the fbi has told officials the bureau looked into the older brother in 2011 and found no red flags. the cia was also approached by the russians with similar concerns about tamerlan. questions were also raised by officials about the tsarnaev's mother, but she and the older brothers names were added to a terrorist identities data base. but the investigation appears to have gone nowhere. was tamerlan tsarnaev radicalized overseas? maybe so. but his uncle says tamerlan's views more likely came from someone in the u.s.
7:43 pm
>> i heard that talking from tamerlan, where that might be coming from. and then he says,oh, yeah, there is -- yes, there is such a thing. there's a person, sort of a new convert into islam. >> that convert, a muslim extremist right here in the boston area. he said this person just took his brain. his brainwashed completely. tamerlan is off now. there's no obedience in rmt respect to his own father. >> he says he stopped listening to music after talking to misha. tamerlan's mother says misha was a good influence on tamerlan. >> when misha visited us, he just opened our eyes, you know, really wide about islam.
7:44 pm
he was really hi devoted and his very good, very nice man. >> dzhokhar tsarnaev told investigators that they conceived the attack. and that they were self radicalized jihadists. >> late this week, new york officials had their own news about the bombers. >> last night, we were informed by the fbi that the surviving attacker revealed that new york city was next on their list of targets. >> the officials said dzhokhar tsarnaev indicated the brothers intended to take their remaining explosive and blow them up in times square. should investigators believe the brothers plotted and carried out the act on their own? still, more questions. few clear answers. we may never know who tamerlan met with overseas. or what happened to him.
